My jump-roping girl is wearing a Charlie Mack-a-doodle dress. My good friend made this pattern because she loves knit dresses for her girls, but wanted to have a slimmer alternative than she could find available in a pattern. This pattern makes a great tank top, then there is an optional drop-waist pattern piece (I also added a ruffle) and a full or 3/4 circle skirt option. So it's a build-your-own kind of thing. This dress is going to be great layered over my purple ruched-sleeve shirt.
To add to the knit cuteness, the designer of the above pattern is about to release a t-shirt pattern with sleeve options. The cool thing is that you could just add the drop waist and skirt onto the t-shirt and have a flutter, short or long-sleeved dress.
Here is my tester tee.
One more stretch fabric garment to show.
I never did take the time to do any more muslins on that "perfect" 70's swim suit pattern, but I did make myself a suit from a ladies' underwear pattern by Jocole. Again, there are tons of options: high-waisted, brief, bikini, boy short, different leg openings, lace accents, ruching. Seriously, this is the only underwear pattern you will ever need.
I just winged the top and it still needs some elastic in the bottom and cups sewn in.
